IT IS HOT! AND WE HAVE ART…..AND AIR CONDITIONING!
This Friday, June 1st! RESUSCITATORUM: New Work by Rich Pellegrino
Rich joins us from his studio in Rhode Island (www.richpellegrino.com), bringing along his special brand of illustration, painting and artistry. RESUSCITATORUM is Latin for “reinvigorate” or “refresh” and, in this exhibit, Pellegrino attempts to breathe new life into the fairy tales, myths and literary classics of his youth. It’s a whole new kind of Princess Show, which finds Pellegrino painting a myriad of sleeping beauties, all clutching symbols and objects from their respective stories, inviting viewers to recollect these ladies of yore. These contemporary interpretations of the slumbering promise to awaken us all to new ways of viewing the old stories we’ve come to love. On view, we’ll also have some prints of famous celebrities and film characters created by Rich. Don’t miss out!
Or come to the PREVIEW PARTY, Thursday, May 31st!
Every once in a while, we open our preview parties to the public – and this is one of those times! If you can’t make First Friday or just cant wait, join us on Thursday night, May 31st, from 7-9 PM. Rich will be onsite to meet and greet and, at 7:30, we’ll take some time for a conversation with him about the work, as well as a time for Q & A.
